Hell Yeah! A New HELLRAISER Is In The Works!

I have to confess that I haven’t seen all the HELLRAISER movies. I loved the first and the third ones. After number three, I lost interest. The series seemed to be straying further and further from the original. I actually thought the franchise had already been rebooted once. I did know that they recast Pinhead,…

Believe in Sax Man

Tim Cappello had a cameo in THE LOST BOYS—and by calling it a cameo we are being generous—and yet he has managed to achieve a cult following for it. “Sax Man,” as his character is known, is still rockin’ three decades later. He finally got around to releasing an album, entitled “Blood on the Reed,”…

Dying On Top Of The World

You ever hear that question-and-answer combo—“Why climb a mountain? Because it’s there.”? That’s not how I see it. I’m perfectly happy admiring the majesty of a mountain from the ground, unless there are roads one can drive upon to reach the summit. A lot of people have tried to climb the granddaddy of all mountains,…

More of the Lot

We got the good news last week that there was a new big-screen version of SALEM’S LOT in the works. Now comes word that the unlucky little town will feature prominently in the second season of the series CASTLE ROCK on Hulu. I didn’t pay a lot of attention to CASTLE ROCK when it came…

Painfully Funny

I’m not kidding. I think I might have cracked a rib laughing at last week’s episode of WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS. The incredible Doug Jones was back as “the Baron,” joining our three hapless vampires for a night on the town. Mr. Jones is the go-to guy for bringing humanity to Horror movie…

Thoughts On WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS: THE TRIAL

I just watched it. I’m still grinning. Dave “Drax the Destroyer” Batista. The stars of the original WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS movie. Tilda Swinton. Wesley Snipes, getting that one last chance to portray Blade. And Paul freakin’ Reubens. Wow. Just wow. References to Keifer Sutherland, and Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise. If they’d…

Fox Cancels THE PASSAGE

It sure didn’t come as a surprise to me, and it shouldn’t have to you, either, if you’ve been regularly following this site. While sites devoted solely to monitoring the ratings of television shows had predicted THE PASSAGE was likely for renewal, I predicted otherwise. After all, the show was airing on Fox. I don’t…

The Christmas Night Massacre

The blood that once stained the streets is long gone, yet there are those who say you can still hear phantom footsteps echoing late at night along the intersection of Cedar Avenue and Third Street, where six men lost their lives on Christmas night of 1927. There are those who claim to have heard the…

Movie Review: MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS

It arrived in the mail today. I’d been waiting on this one ever since I first learned about it (and reported on it). A retrospective on the career of Dan Curtis, creator of DARK SHADOWS, and a loving homage to his most famous creation. If you’re looking for a straight biography of Mr. Curtis, this…

Ice Zombie Winter King Whatever

I talked about this a bit last week. I’m one of those people, the minuscule minority, who doesn’t watch GAME OF THRONES. I’m not one of those people who cares if YOU watch GAME OF THRONES. Hating on GAME OF THRONES is apparently a thing now, if one can judge from social media. I don’t…

Zombie Pig Brains

I couldn’t quite decide where to park this one. Typically if an article is animal-related, I’ll post it on our sister site werewolves.com. That’s where I handle such topics as cryptozoology, cannibalism, demons, serial killers, Sasquatch, any sort of monster that is inclined to eat you, and the requisite subject, werewolves. Here we deal with…

New News on DRACULA

This is the upcoming series that I won’t get to see when you get to see it (because it’s gonna be on freakin’ Netflix instead of on cable!), the one from the folks who brought us SHERLOCK, the one starring Claes Bang (worst, and by that I mean best, name for an actor to portray…
